The dynamism, social aspiration, educational excellence and visionary infrastructural projects on show in China and India might remind us why productivity matters. While we talk up innovation...

Post-G20 Public Summit: Battle for the Economy - www.battleofideas.org.uk Is state intervention the solution, or will it create new problems? The scale of the increase in public-sector debt could well be a heavy burden that drags on future growth. The FT’s Martin Wolf warns, ‘escaping from huge and prolonged deficits will be very hard’. Ross Walker of the Royal Bank of Scotland is concerned that the private sector’s contraction in contrast to the public realm means ‘we are likely to...

Post-G20 Public Summit: Battle for the Economy - www.battleofideas.org.uk Does demonising bankers mean fetishising the financial sector as the sole cause of our economic problems? If the problem is located solely in finance, inevitably the answer focuses mainly on that sector. But are the only solutions to today’s problems really ‘tougher global financial regulation’ and ‘a more robust financial architecture for the future’ to restore the credibility of banking? Is finance the core...

Post-G20 Public Summit: Battle for the Economy - www.battleofideas.org.uk How we interpret the recession, and whom if anyone we blame for it, are key political and social as well as economic questions. So can we demystify the causes of the current global economic crisis? Some say the free market has had its comeuppance, and the crisis is a timely reminder of the need for a ‘sustainable’ economy. Some argue consumerism is the problem, though fiscal stimulus packages seem fixated on...

Do Darwinian approaches put economics beyond political debate, or might they inform better economic policy? Can blaming the behaviour of bankers or blaming ourselves lead anywhere other than to the conclusion that the crisis is ‘our fault’? What does the prevalence of...
